Not ready to say goodbye. Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) struggled with the death of his mother, Marilyn (Laura Niemi), during the Tuesday, January 25, episode of This Is Us, titled “Don’t Let Me Keep You.”

Jack assured Rebecca (Mandy Moore) that he should make the trip by himself to Ohio for his mother’s funeral, insisting that it was not worth it to take the kids on a four-hour car ride. He noted that the Big Three barely knew their grandmother, except from phone calls. Marilyn had not visited her son’s family since the triplets were babies.

Marilyn relocated to Ohio when she left Jack’s abusive father, Stanley (Peter Onorati). She moved in with her cousin, Debbie (Camryn Manheim), while Jack promised to visit her and check in during their weekly phone calls. However, Jack never traveled to Ohio to see his mother in the 13 years after he helped her settle in there.

After Marilyn’s death, Jack quickly discovered that he knew very little about his mom — from the fact that she owned a cat to the revelation that she had a boyfriend named Mike whom she met at a local coffee shop. Mike informed Jack that he was Marilyn’s hero, but Jack retorted that he was no hero because he missed out on his mother’s life. Although Marilyn and Jack often spoke about visiting each other, she worried about running into Stanley and he was always too busy to travel with the kids.

After having several drinks at the local bar, Jack called his father to tell him that Marilyn died of an aneurysm. Stanley wanted to come to the service, but Jack explained that he was not inviting his dad. He was letting Stanley know that Jack missed his mother’s life because the abuse they suffered at the patriarch’s hands hung over them even after they got away from him.

Jack later called Rebecca to lament his missteps in his relationship with his mother. At the funeral, he had trouble finding the words to say about Marilyn in the eulogy, but he found the strength to carry on when Rebecca and the kids arrived. Jack explained how he and his mom built new lives — apart from each other — to try to escape the abuse of their former home and shared that he was grateful for the family she found in Ohio. The Big Three later bonded with Mike and Debbie, getting to enjoy the visit they never had with their grandmother. Once the Pearsons returned home, Jack broke down over no longer having a mother as Rebecca consoled him.

This Is Us airs on NBC Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

Investigation Continues After Police Chase Ends With Two Suspects Dead After Jumping Into Little Calumet River

CHICAGO (CBS) — A police chase involving a stolen Rolls Royce ended with two suspects dead in a river on the Far South Side. 

It all started Saturday morning near the intersection of Chicago and Orleans in River North when police got a report of that stolen Rolls Royce in the 18th police district. The call specified the driver of the high-end car got out and left the car running. 

Troopers followed the vehicle to 173rd and Torrence in south suburban Lansing, where the car was parked and five people then got into a black Infiniti. 

The chase continued but ended soon after when the Infiniti crashed at 127th and Indiana. Three people were taken into custody.

First responders pulled 21-year-old Curtis Hicks and 26-year-old Amos Gibson from the river. They were both hospitalized and later pronounced dead. 

The Illinois State Police directive for vehicle pursuits and forcible vehicle states states that troopers will only participate in another agency’s pursuit if the reason for initiation is in accordance with ISP’s policy. An officer will termintae the pursuit when it’s reasonably clear that if they continue with the pursuit it will create more danger to the public. 

ISP has not released any details about the three other suspects. CBS 2 asked to know what kind of charges they will face and was told the investigation is still active and when it is done it will be turned over to the Cook County State’s Attorney to determine charges.
